Who else hates the word MENSES AND MENSTRUATION? I do !!!! But anyway lets talk about that time of the month called a PERIOD (nobody should call it menses please ).
It’s important you pay attention to your period timing and occurrence so it doesn’t throw you off balance, nervous or leave you asking questions like;
“Did I take something contrary?”
” Did I break something?”
” Am I pregnant?
When it comes to your reproductive system, it is very unpredictable. Lifestyle changes, diet illness and even stress can affect when your period arrives.
SOME OF THE REASONS YOUR PERIOD CAN COME EARLIER
EXTREME CHANGE IN YOUR DIET
Changing your eating habits can impact the frequency and regularity of your period hence seeing your period early.
IF YOU ARE TAKING MEDICATION
Missing a dose or two of a birth control pills can cause your period to come early.
IF YOU TOOK THE MORNING AFTER PILL
It’s not true for all though , but depending on which was used, taking these pills three or more days to ovulation is likely to make your period come earlier.
IF YOU ARE APPROACHING MENOPAUSE
At about this time, your period becomes unpredictable and can definitely cause your period to come earlier.
IF YOU ARE STRESSED
If you are constantly stressed, don’t be surprised to see the red light earlier than expected. Mental stress can alter the regular activities of your hormones hence altering your cycle.
IF YOU HAVE AN UNDIAGNOSED CONDITION/ILLNESS
Health Conditions such as PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), endometriosis can interfere with your reproductive hormones, causing the early arrival of your period.
Major weight changes such as weight gain or weight loss in terms of extreme dieting or eating disorders can be a reason for early period.
Most importantly, if you notice any drastic change in your menstrual cycle and you are not very sure of the cause, we advise you speak to a doctor ⚕so they can guide you through.
